There were some unheralded heroes this week. There always are. Let’s take a look at them and see if they are worthy of your fantasy rosters.
.
Get ‘em
John Brown, WR, Baltimore Ravens – Caught 3 of 7 targets for 116 yards and a score. Averaging 98 yards in last three games.
Derek Carr, QB, Oakland Raiders – 437 yards, 4 TDs. QB2 or plug in option during bye weeks.
Nick Chubb, RB, Cleveland Browns – 105 yards and a pair of scores on three carries. He should get mixed in more.
Mike Davis, RB, Seattle Seahawks – 124 total yards and a pair of TDs. Get him, but be cautious on playing him.
Joe Flacco, QB, Baltimore Ravens – 363 yards and 2 TDs. Multiple TDs in 3 of 4 games. QB2 or plug in option during bye weeks.
Nyheim Hines, RB, Indianapolis Colts – 73 total yards and a pair of TDs. PPR-league depth.
Aaron Jones, RB, Green Bay Packers – 82 total yards and a TD. RBBC but he seems to be the most effective.
Vance McDonald, TE, Pittsburgh Steelers – Caught all five targets for 62 yards.
Mohamed Sanu, WR, Atlanta Falcons – Caught 6 of 9 targets for 111 yards. 3rd option, but should be good for bench depth.
.
Don’t Sweat ‘em

Keke Coutee, WR, Houston Texans – Caught 11 of 15 targets for 109 yards.
